Our philosophy

The Regional Institute was established to make information on which to build individual and community knowledge and generate public debate on social, environmental and economic issues, freely available and accessible via the Internet.

Its philosophy is to share its knowledge to improve the development and delivery of information to rural and regional Australia. It widely promotes uniform standards for managing information in electronic formats.

We are committed to:

  • Provide professional and ethical services and advice in publishing and information and knowledge management.
  • Build trust and positive relationships with academic and professional associations, the scientific community, educational institutions and other networks.
  • Advocate professional standards in the management and delivery of information.
  • Keep abreast of innovations in technology and knowledge management.
